For my next Railroad I want to replicate some of the activities of the Corps of Canadian Railway Troops in Europe 1918.

At the height of World War 1 the Corps of Canadian Railway Troops contained 19,000 personnel - 16,000 working in France and Belgium, with the remainder in England.

Canadian railway soldiers constructed all light railways in areas occupied by the five British Armies, and 60 % of the standard gauge lines connecting the channel ports to the front lines. In total, Canadians built 1169 miles of broad gauge railway line and miles of narrow gauge line during their wartime service. That is some serious Narrow Gauge railroad to model.

For some partial information you can go to this link:
http://guysboroughgreatwarveterans.blogspot.com/2013/02/canadian-railway-troops.html

I will be modeling using 1/43 and 1/48 in forced perspective. Track will be Code 70 set at 16.5 mm. It should be 14mm but I need to use available drive units from HO models. Therefore the closest fit is ON30.

I have been building a few models for the past 6 months. Now it is time to get serious.

Let the games begin.

Larry, a fitting tribute to veterans. Thanks for posting.

Larry, your layout is a good reminder of how bad WWI was.

Good point. On my own layout, I have several soldiers, but not enough that I have to paint too many. I could focus on each individually (painting the 1LT bar on the front of one GI helmet took a tiny brush and a very steady hand). I couldn't imagine painting dozens of them like you have to, and with full overseas combat loads!

As for the Canadian troops, I really like you have several in the burlap helmet covers for their Brodie helmets. Nice touch!


Thanks, The hanging lady is a gaming figure and came with two skeletons, can't remember the make. I have been able to find a few figures in 32mm gaming that work for this type of fun post.

Thank you Frank, Cody and Larry C. No work on the RR this week I better get cracking.
Larryc Posted - 10/18/2020 : 5:55:30 PM
Larry nice collection of critters that you have. Dude, that is an insane amount of figures you've painted. That will add a lot to your layout's presentation. Although you may have to start taking roll call before each operating session.

I love shots like this! You've got an outstanding collection.

I don't know what's more impressive, painting all those figures or drinking that much wine. In either case "job well done". Cheers
BigLars Posted - 10/11/2020 : 09:06:50 AM
Thanks Jerry and Rick.

Rick,
The paint on the critter in question is a form of camouflage used in WW1. I was mostly used on tanks and artillery but did make it to a few pieces of RR equipment. I have painted much if my artillery this way.
Rick Posted - 10/11/2020 : 06:40:12 AM
Impressive collection of figures, corks an critters.
What's the deal with the paint scene on the critter second row from the bottom and second from the left?
TRAINS1941 Posted - 10/10/2020 : 10:52:30 PM
Nice collection of corks!!

I get a headache just thinking of painting all those figures.




He said he would only eat the B**h. He is going down for for that comment. I hope this stays kind of clean.
